Rocmec Drills an Additional 2000 Metres at its Rocmec 1 Gold Property

VAUDREUIL-DORION, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) - Rocmec Mining inc. (the « company ») (TSX VENTURE:RMI)(FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to announce that it has undertaken an additional 2000 metres of exploration drilling on the western part of the Rocmec 1 property.

The objective of this drilling campaign is to improve the quality of the available data and to augment the level of confidence of the mineralized panel of an approximate horizontal width of 0.60m at the level 130m. The recent drill hole RS-02-09 being the closest of the proposed drill targets (150m west) intersected mineralization corresponding to the McDowell vein at 12.9 g/t Au over 0.45m (Core length) and the McDowell 2 vein at 25.79 g/t Au over 0.25m (core length). The additional drilling will permit to increase the knowledge of the two structures as well as the Talus and Boucher and Boucher 2 structures.

Rocmec 1: The Rocmec 1 project is located in the Dasserat Township, Province of Québec on the shores of the Labyrinthe Lake. It is approximately 35 kilometres west of the town of Rouyn-Noranda. The property includes a 100m deep two compartment shaft, an 844 metre decline allowing access to five levels (50, 70, 90,110 and 130 metres). On these levels a total of 1700 metres (drifts and cross-cut drift) were driven. The Rocmec 1 ore body is well defined by diamond drill holes (click to view mine layout).

A NI43-101 compliant report was prepared Système Géostat International of Blainville (Quebec) and made public in March 2010. The gold mineral resources totalled 85,900 ounces in the Measured and Indicated category and an additional 556,400 ounces in the Inferred category (with a cut-off grade of 3 g/t and high grades were capped at 45 g/t). The Front West and McDowell 2 structures were estimated using a 2D polygonal estimation method, whereas the remaining structures (Talus, Shaft, Boucher and Boucher 2) were estimated using the 2D block model estimation method.

The gold zones are Front West, McDowell, Talus, Shaft, Boucher and Boucher 2. The average true widths of the gold zones vary from 0.61 meters to 2.32 meters. The known mineralization now lies from surface to a vertical depth of 400 meters and was delineated over a strike length of approximately 1.66 kilometres.
